Play is a fundamental part of children's lives. However, children with neurodisability, including cerebral palsy, have little access to it. For Physical, Occupational and Speech and Language Therapists, maximising access to play is a priority, however, delivering multidisciplinary interventions is challenging and can lead to protracted care that is costly.
This project will investigate whether digital game-based learning can support mode deactivation therapy (MDT) that is engaging for children and staff. It will develop and test a play intervention consisting of carefully selected and adapted digital multiplayer games. The technology will be co-designed with children who have neurodisability, families, early years staff and therapists.
